This book was dedicated to Vladimir Vasilyevich Lebedev, Soviet painter and graphic artist. He became famous for his exceptional illustrations for the poems of the famous poet and translator Samuil Marshak. In the 1920s, Lebedev had earned the title of "The King of the Children's Book." A pioneer in the field of children's illustration, he would later say on the influence of his works "I still consider to have positively influenced the creation of a new Soviet book for children, and, what is more important, this book acquired a character of its own". In 2012, his work was included in an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. The book is illustrated with some of the Lebedev's artwork. Acceptable condition. Detached covers. Frayed spine, creases on margins, rubbings. Published by the State Russian Museum, 1928.
